Excerpt

The subject matter of this book was originally presented to Bryn Mawr College to meet one of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Its preparation has been aided by many friends. I am deeply indebted to Dr. Conyers Read, of the University of Pennsylvania, who inspired the study and gave constant advice and help throughout the work; to Dr. Howard L. Gray, of Bryn Mawr College, who read the manuscript with care and made many valuable suggestions; to Dr. Caroline Robbins and Dr. C. W. David, of Bryn Mawr College, for their helpful guidance; and to Dr. Frederick J. Manning and Dr. Mary Albertson, of Swarthmore College, for their interest and encouragement. The seminar in Tudor history at the Institute of Historical Research in London, directed by Professor J. E. Neale, has been helpful. I wish to acknowledge the courtesy of the officials of the British Museum and the Public Record Office in London and of the National Library of Scotland and the General Register House in Edinburgh. Dr. Annie I. Cameron of the General Register House has been most kind. Finally, I thank the Trustees and Faculties of Bryn Mawr College and Swarthmore College for generous grants which made possible this investigation.

The financial responsibility for the publication of the book has been assumed by the American Historical Association through its Committee which administers the Carnegie Revolving Fund. I am very grateful to the Committee. I am indebted to Miss Marjorie D. Marsh and to Miss Jean MacLachlan, of D. Appleton-Century Company, Inc., for valuable editorial work.
